2: Ordinary World Marlin and Coral live in an anemone but one day Coral got killed by a shark which also ate all of their eggs except for one. Marlin becomes extremely nervous and worrisome. He rarely ever leaves the anemone because he doesn't like danger. He has to face that when Nemo starts school.
3: Call to Adventure Marlin is very hesitant about letting Nemo start school. He tries to convince him to wait another year before starting but he finally gives in and takes him.
4: Refusal of the Call Nemo is at the drop off when Marlin swims up and thinks he's about to swim out. Nemo tries to convince him otherwise but Marlin does not believe him and says "You think you can do things but you just can't Nemo!"
5: Crossing the First Threshold Nemo swims out past the dropoff and gets taken by these two scuba divers. Marlin instantly swims after him.
6: Meeting with the Mentor Dory is a fish with short term memory loss. Marlin runs into her on his search for Nemo. She teaches him how to relax and just believe. Dory uses humor as a way to teach him.
7: Tests Marlin and Dory encounter 3 sharks and have to escape before they get eaten. Dory and Marlin also come to a large section of jellyfish and have to go through without getting stung. | Allies They ask this school of shiny fish where to go and they act out what the places look like. Crush finds them and take them to the EAC. The pelican brings them to Nemo. | Enemies The sharks want to eat them. The dentist doesn't want to lose and of his fish, including Nemo. Marlin and Dory drop the goggles with the address on it to the bottom of the ocean and have to face a large fish.
8: Approach to the Inmost Cave Immediately after they get spewed out of the whale is the approach to the inmost cave, since the big showdown is in Sydney.
9: Death Experience Marlin faces his greatest test when he arrives in the dentist’s office and sees Nemo floating belly up. Marlin gives up all hope of ever being reunited with Nemo.
10: The Reward The reward is when Marlin is reunited with Nemo. He went through being certain that Nemo was dead and still found him.
11: The Road Back The road back is the brief moment after he reunites with Nemo and they begin to go home and when the net comes down and catches all of the fish, including Dory.
12: Ressurection This is when Dory gets caught in the net with all of the other fish. Marlin has to use what Dory taught him about trust and allow Nemo to risk his life and try and save Dory
13: The return with the elixir is when Dory is saved and they return to the reef. It is easily seen that Marlin is much more trusting and is able to cope with Nemo being on his own.
